I don’t know what it is – it seems like every Friday has been rather soggy! Our sports department was complaining to me because they’ve had to shoot Friday Night Flights in the rain for the last several weeks. Sorry guys….
It won’t be a washout today, but we will be tracking on and off showers all the way through this evening. There is an area of low pressure to our south that will gradually nudge north, then we also have a cold front coming in from the west, so that’s why it’ll be a dreary end to the week.
There could be bouts of moderate to heavy rain at times, especially this evening. A few passing showers expected overnight into early, early Saturday morning. Overall, we’ll see increasing sunshine tomorrow. Temperatures will only top out in the mid-50s tomorrow courtesy of a brisk northwest breeze.
From Saturday night into Sunday morning, we’ll have clear skies, which will allow the mercury to plummet into the mid-30s near the coast, then upper-20s to low-30s farther inland. This will be some of the coldest air of the season..so far. Our record low that morning is 30° (1913). Veteran’s Day will remain cool despite sunny skies – highs only near 50°.
We will observe Veteran’s Day on Monday and luckily, most of Monday will be dry with increasing clouds. Showers will develop late Monday evening and continue through Tuesday morning. At this point, Tuesday looks like a soaking wet day with steady rain from start to finish.
So bottom line – at least the weekend will be dry – cool, but dry!
Before I go, let me just say thank you to all of our veterans across the Tidewater Region and northeast North Carolina! Have a great weekend!
